FS-EX310-1 Ring Anchor HLL Usage

Related Products: FS-EX310-1 Ring Anchor

The FS-EX310-1 Ring Anchor was initially marked as a 5,000 lbs. ANSI Z359.18-2017 rated single point anchor with a limited working radius of 30°. The product manual stated, “The FS-EX310-1 is not for use in Horizontal Lifeline (HLL) applications.” However, after extensive testing, the Ring Anchor is suitable for HLL use.

HLL use with the Ring Anchor is permitted in systems that require a 5,000 lbs. or less anchor point. The anchor still meets ANSI Z359.18-2017 when used as a single point anchor with a working radius of 30°. Additionally, the Ring Anchor meets OSHA regulations as a 3,600 lbs. anchor point when used as a single point anchor with a 360° working radius.

Products already in the field may not reference HLL use on labels/manuals. However, future labels and manuals will be updated. Current product specifications have not changed. Therefore, the use of current FS-EX310-1 Ring Anchors in the field with HLLs is permissible provided the user follows the Safewaze product manual and guidelines.
